Time-elapsed Workflow to change "date_modified"

Hello everyone!

Maybe I have trouble understanding it correctly or this is just not possible, but I would really appreciate some input concerning time-elapsed workflows.

Before I start: Of course I've read the documentation on workflows as well most related questions in this forum.

 

When my time-elapsed workflow triggers it changes the description field in the specified module.

So far so good. The only problem is, I would like this workflow to be recurring, meaning the following:

 

When the workflow triggers and the description field gets changed the "date_modifed" field does not get updated.

As I've gathered from other questions this seems to be the case for some other users though and they wanted to prevent the "date_modified" field from changing. I want the opposite, I want the "date_modified" field to be updated to the moment the workflow triggers.

 

Problems: This module can't be accessed in Studio, I only have admin-level access and I am running on Sugar Pro 7.x which means no advanced workflows.
